Congratulations on this life accomplishment.
I bet you could sell those words to the next chicken soup for the soul book. Or if you ever become a general authority it could be the basis of a conference talk. Seriously, I liked it.
of course this would be one of your favorite posts. it's the one where i apparently proposed to you via comment.congrats on the year mark!
great idea with the repost myke. i probably would have never read this amazing post otherwise. now i'm just waiting for some "lj" posts circa 2003.
